I did something vaguely similar in 2001, when I collected my UK spec car
from Germany. I had ordered it from a dealer in Germany and told them it's
going to the UK.
There were/are two issues:
- Amount of options (UK entry-level is higher than in Germany, so less than
UK makes it harder to sell in the UK).
- Regulatory issues: the obvious is speedometer in miles. (No, RHD is not
madatory). Another is operating manual in English.
You'll have similar considerations for the US.
My reason for doing it was to save money, not to get a model faster.
UK dealers offer a collect-from-the factory scheme whereby they organise
temporary number plates, temporary insurance, Channel crossing fare, import
prodedure etc. Maybe US dealers do something similar.
I would NOT buy a German spec car and then try to bring it over to the US by
myself. It is highly unlikely you will enjoy the experience.
